Internet Trends 2012 by KPCB (December update) /// Mobile accounts

KPCB had updated its former presentation from last May.

As usual:
The mobile concept had been evolving since last 5 years. 5 years ago "mobile" was smartphones, Treos and Blackberrys. Now "mobile" is tablets.

 iPad Growth (3x iPhone) Leaves "Siblings" in Dust (Slide 9) but tablets are used mostly with WiFi connections!

Bad News – Rapidly Growing Mobile Internet Usage Surpassed More Highly Monetized Desktop Internet Usage in May, 2012, in India. OTHER COUNTRIES TO FOLLOW (Slide 16)

Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Venezuela, Colombia are South American countries but ... South America is an unserved / unexploited market for the Online Dating Industry. 

What comes after Social Networking?
My bet: The Next Big Investment Opportunity on the Internet will be .... Personalization!
Personality Based Recommender Systems and Strict Personality Based Compatibility Matching Engines for serious Online Dating with the normative 16PF5 personality test. The market remains enormous!!
